Barely twenty-four hours after an incident wherein three youths went on a rampage damaging cars in Mohannagar in Pimpri on Friday night, yet another incident of mindless vehicle vandalism was reported in Pimpale Nilakh area of the Pimpri-Chinchwad township on Friday night. Nine accused, mostly youngsters, have been arrested while the vehicles damaged have been identified as a Tata Safari car, an autorickshaw, two Honda bikes , one Honda scooter, one CBZ bike and one Tata Indigo car.

A case against unidentified youngsters has been lodged at Sangvi police station by a victim identified as Mayur Dilip Madane (30), a resident of Vinayaknagar in Pimpale Nilakh in Sangvi. The FIR states that the rampaging youngsters targeted five bikes and two cars during their aggressive midnight attack outside Hardev Krupa housing society in Pimpale Nilakh.
